the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin

until the first presidential debate, president obama and mitt romney will have the chance to press one another to answer questions that they themselves have been reluctant to answer. we'll run through some big ones, keeping them honest tonight. first, we've got some late polling. new cnn/orc numbers that show the race tightening. president obama still leads among likely voters 50% to 47% but that three-point gap is within the poll's margin of error. by comparison, just after the conventions, mr. obama got a four-point bounce to put him in the lead by six. the president's favorable rating meantime remains above the crucial 50% mark at 52%. mr. romney is close but still in negative territory at 49%. he enjoys an edge on handling the deficit and joblessness, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has
obama is speaking to certain people, whether they are workers at gm plants or black audience he tends to drop his g's and gets from folk i sy. >> in this was the middle of very successful presidential campaign. the media were siding by content to say obama says it, he is race transcending visionary beyond partisan. all this stuff that reporters were saying in 2008, they could have looked at this. it's been on youtube for five years. >> it is not same as 47%. >> why is it not. is it different? >> one difference mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that speech? no. >> and the difference is the "new york times" has covered the 47% video and they have not covered the video from barack obama. >> it's on not in the same universe. it rail isn't. i know conservatives are trying push that, but it is not in the same universe. >> jon: all right, next on news watch, uni' vision's report on fast and furious might put the mainstream media to shame. >>. >> jon: univision the sp

presidential debate coming up tomorrow night. president obama just three points ahead of republican challenger mitt romney in the latest cnn/orc poll. that is within the poll's margin of error. meaning that it's anybody's game. >> and both candidates are pulling the political equivalent of an all-nighter in preparation for their first face-to-face showdown. president obama spoke to a supporter after stopping at a campaign office in nevada. >> indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> a cnn contributor and a washington correspondent for the new yorker is back with us. everybody is saying it's not about winning. but of course it is. what does romney need to do? let's start with him? >> i think he's got three challenges here because he's down. when you're down in the polls going into the debate that raises expectations for you. and traditionally the first debate is the most important. the first thing he needs to do is policy. he needs to get a little bit more specific than he has, some of the polls, that's what the undecided voters want. the swing voters want. they w
attack that killed five turkish civilians. the first presidential debate in the u.s. what a time for government figures to come out. >> obama did not do well and he needs a good employment figures. we will not get a sudden surge in employment to get him off of the hook. the best you can hope for is slightly better figures. we might get slightly better figures. we might get 110,000 employed this last month, september. you still have 23 million people unemployed or in part time work. over the last four weeks, we have seen unemployment benefit levels stay pretty sleazy -- steady at slightly falling. it is not really going anywhere. it is the level of uncertainty. there was a discussion with someone who said, this is not going to go away. >> i am not expecting that uncertainty to be materially lifted until we reach that goal. we will be living with this uncertainty well into next year, even though we will know the outcome of the election. >> take us to another part of the world where there is a brighter picture. >> samsung. it really has been a tremendous story. it is up against appl
, in the last presidential campaign, debates were not president obama's strengths. in fact, he's a much better speechmaker than he is a debater. and don't forget, he hasn't debated an awful lot lately. when the president of the united states and you're in the oval office, people tend not to debate with you an awful lot. you live in the presidential bubble. he hasn't been on stage with other people challenging him. so in a way, he sort of has got to get used to this routine over and over again, where as mitt romney has been on a debate stage an awful lot of times. >> if i recall, you were in a lot of those debates, he's tough, he's no wallflower that mitt romney. what is his biggest challenge, though? going into wednesday? >> the biggest challenge, i think mitt romney has got to do a couple of things. they're at odds with each other. first thing goehe's got to do i take on president obama directly when it comes to policy. what he has to tell the voters is i've got a better plan for an economic recovery than the president. he has to challenge him directly. but, brooke, he has to do it in a way,
. this is the first time he's ever engaged in a one-on-one presidential debate. bill: how are they playing the expectations team, president obama's team? >> they were in nevada, they are tog much th doing much the same thing. they set up a debate camp at the west lynn lake lain lake las vegas resort. even though he was thought to win all three debates back in 2008 he was playing down expeck i stations for himself yesterday. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who is going to have the best zingers [you are ] >> i don't know about that, who is going to put the most points on the board. [you are ] >> no, no, governor romney he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: i'm just okay i think a lot of people would say he's a little better than just okay. do the debates really matter? sometimes they do, 1960 they established john kenny as a bonafide candidate. we remember the reagan debates and the zinger lines he had. what happened with gerald ford, and al gore losing a lot of points to george bush in 2000. we could safely say again, bill in the overall these debates don'
of the key swing states that could decide the outcome of the presidential race. it's ohio, and ohio carries 18 electoral votes. a court has now given the obama campaign a victory allowing voters to cast ballot on the final weekend before the election. the state has been a focus of the campaigns. there was even some name-dropping at the debate. >> i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm and said i've been out of work since may, can you help me? >> so at the cleveland clinic, one of the best health care systems in the world, they actually provide great care cheaper than average, and the reason they do is because they do some smart things. >> let's bring in the republican assistant secretary of state for ohio. scott, good morning to you. first your reaction to yesterday's ruling? >> i think yesterday's ruling was -- it came at 3:00 yesterday. we haven't had time to talk about it at the office. i think it was something that was expected based on the draw that came from the court. the secretary of state has decided by monday morning he's going to be making a decision on which way to go
is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward. the question of the number came out of the household survey, 800,000 plus number, there is a lot of margin for error, possibly as much as 400,000. that is admitted by folks within the labor department
that these voters tend to favor the republican presidential candidate, and in this election the survey said they favored romney 58% to obama 34. they tend to lean right, these military voters, but they don't all vote. and you say in this year is the worst it has been in terms of the voting assistance being provided which is really too bad. eric, thank you. housenk you. republican now putting a hold on $450 million of money meant for the people of egypt, this after our embassy came in -- under attack in cairo. what, if anything, egypt can do to repair its standing with the united states and whether we're really likely to withhold that aid. >>> last week we introduced you to in the young woman, she was voted to her homecoming court and then found out it was a prank. in three minutes, what happened when she showed up at school this past friday night. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> woodruff: the first presidential debate is behind them, but the two sides went at it again today. republicans said their man took it to the president in the denver duel. the obama camp charged the truth got trampled in the process. >> la night i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very different visions for the country. and -- (applause) -- and i think it was helpful to be able to describe those visions. i said the president's vision is trickle-down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: romney's reception at the event was reinforced by instant polling that he won last night's encounter by more than 2-1. but at an obama rally in denver, the president charged romney had repeatedly misrepresented his own positions on jobs and taxes. >> so you see the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's
in last night's initial presidential debate. overnight polling gave him the advantage. president obama and fellow democrats charged romney did not tell the truth during the face-off. and turkish artillery shelled targets in syria for a second day, after a syrian mortar round killed five turks on weesday. the newshour had extensive debate coverage on air and online, starting with an all-day live stream. hari sreenivasan explains. and we closed out the morning hours with a live google plus hangout. political editor christina bellantoni chatted with two undecided voters about the debate's impact on their choice in november. >> the way i feel after watching this debate, i don't know how much good it's going to do for me to watch, to be honest. the idea of not voting seems terrible but when i'm picking between the less of two evils, like i said, i don't know how much good i'm doing, either. >> i'm against the political apathy that i see in a lot of kind of -- my peers and, you know, this is a big chance to be able to vot and feel like your vote decides something and, you know, that people -
. >> well, basically, you know, we're just disappointed that governor romney and president obama haven't addressed gun violence in a concrete, specific way. and so basically we're demanding a plan from both of them. in advance of a presidential election, and presidential debate in denver, and asking that they put forth something specific, aside from just platitudes and moments of silence, and actually get down to the business of preventing that violence. >> how likely do you think it is, i mean ron has covered more -- more presidential debates than the rest of us. >> you know, this issue i think has been shelved by a myth. and the myth is since al gore lost in 2000 that gun control is overwhelmingly been rejected by the country. in fact the country is very closely divided. almost exactly in half. support has diminished since bill clinton was in august and was making the case for it. you contrast columbine when there was enormous white house focus and national conversation after those shootings to what happened here where there is the silence. democrats in particular have been intimidat

-stakes presidential debates. >> you are about to look live at a stage where it will all unfold at the university of denver. there is president obama and mitt romney preparing to go face-to-face for 90 minutes with the presidency hanging in the balance. >> most americans head to the polls in five weeks. but by that time, an estimated 30% of the country will have already voted. >> early voting gets under way this morning in the battleground state of ohio, and the not so battleground state of nebraska. that means ballots are already being cast in ten states across the country. cnn political editor paul steinhauser is with us this morning. paul, more and more voters get a chance to go to the polls early. why is this so important? >> it is interesting, because what happens if a big development happens in this first debate or even some of the other debates and you've already cast your ballot and you want to change your mind. too late. most of the people who are voting early in these states are die-hards. ohio starting today. they're the second battleground state to start early. iowa, christine you kno

presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you
